It’s time for the Local Lodge Website Contest!

The Fraternal Committee of the Grand Lodge will award Local Lodges who keep their Members informed and active in Grand Lodge Programs and local communities’ projects through a Local Lodge website or Facebook page.

Florida will conduct a state contest and then submit the state winners to compete for the Grand Lodge awards. The state will award either a Three-star, Four-star or Five-star award to each entry.

Website or Facebook page judging is based on Content (news of Grand Lodge Programs, news of State and Local programs); Layout (menu or table of contents, accessibility of committees and readability); Design (special presentation methods); Graphics (pop up or scrolling messages, etc., overall continuity of site, use of photographs or graphics); and telling the Elks story. These five points will receive 1-20 points each.

Winners submitted by the state to the Grand Lodge contest will have their Website or Facebook page accessed three times during the year by the Grand Lodge website contest administrator.
